College basketball player suffers gruesome leg injury on drive to basket

Saint Joseph’s one-point loss Saturday would have been tough enough for the men’s basketball team, but Pierfrancesco Oliva’s gruesome leg injury made it a truly painful night.

The Saint Joseph’s forward was driving to the basket in the first half when he was met by Duquesne defender Michael Hughes at the rim, where Hughes blocked the shot and sent Oliva falling to the court.
